Say Cheese

posted on: 6.10.2008

My mom is dying for a new post... mostly of Tate. So, here are some of the funny things she's been doing lately.
Cheese! Tate has learned to point to her her cheeks (sometimes chin) when I have the camera out. If I say cheese, she knows just what to do and cheese's it up for me. It's so funny, it's so her.

This day in particular she LOVED her outfit. As soon as I put this dress on her, she twirled back and forth holding the ruffles! This is also the day she learned how to do "cheese". I think the first provoked the second. She knew she looked cute, so she wanted to cheese it up for the camera. ALL day.

Really, all day....

Of course, I obliged- how could I say no to those eyes?!

Why do I need to take her to a water park when Smith's Marketplace is up the street? They had plenty fountains to play in! While I was picking out flowers, Tate was splashing in the fountains. She started out just dabbling her fingers, then splashing, then really splashing, and by the end she was soaked! People were laughing at her as they walked in, because she was so excited about it. Not to mention, it was getting cold and started to rain! She didn't care though- she just kept on performing! I didn't care because I was getting my stuff done, and she was having a blast.
As soon as I got the camera out she really got into "character" and was hamming it up for the camera. Soaked... and freezing! She was so wet that I literally had to ring her dress out before we got in the car, and she rode home like a redneck. Quirky Tate... this is how she's decided she likes to watch cartoons in the morning? In her toy basket, with ALL the toys inside with her? So random. Oh, I love her for it though! This is what happens when I leave her alone with Wyatt. He was bored and thought she needed to wear ALL her hairclips!
Some other things she's into are...
- trying to crawl out of her crib- already
- saying e-i-e-i-O
- being a daddy's girl
- wanting to pick out her own clothes
- still only eating strawberries, crakers, and a few others
- helping me garden. She loves the shovel
- picking her nose. If you even say the word "nose" or "booger" her little finger goes right up there! how do they learn that?
